  • Le Menestrel, Marc; Lemaire, Bertrand (2004)
    We represent interval ordered homothetic preferences with a quantitative homothetic utility function and a multiplicative bias. When preferences are weakly ordered (i.e. when indifference is transitive), such a bias equals ...
  • Le Menestrel, Marc; Lemaire, Bertrand (2004)
    In the homogeneous case of one-dimensional objects, we show that any preference relation that is positive and homothetic can be represented by a quantitative utility function and unique bias. This bias may favor or disfavor ...
  • Graham, Yvette; Thurmair, Gregor; Toral, Antonio; Aleksic, Vera (2014)
  • Aitchison, J.; Greenacre, Michael (2001)
    The singular value decomposition and its interpretation as a linear biplot has proved to be a powerful tool for analysing many forms of multivariate data. Here we adapt biplot methodology to the speciffic case of compositional ...
  • Asan, Zerrin; Greenacre, Michael (2008)
    A biplot, which is the multivariate generalization of the two-variable scatterplot, can be used to visualize the results of many multivariate techniques, especially those that are based on the singular value decomposition. ...
  • Garcia Villar, Jaume; Quintana, Climent (2005)
    This paper examines the associations between obesity, employment status and wages for several European countries. Our results provide weak evidence that obese workers are more likely to be unemployed or tend to be more ...
  • Baten, Jörg; van Zanden, Jan Luiten (2007)
    Endogenous growth theory suggests that human capital formation plays a significant role for the ‘wealth and poverty of nations.’ In contrast to previous studies which denied the role of human capital as a crucial determinant ...
  • Freixas, Xavier; Tsomocos, Dimitrios P. (2004)
    The aim of this paper is to examine the pros and cons of book and fair value accounting from the perspective of the theory of banking. We consider the implications of the two accounting methods in an overlapping generations ...
  • Sáez, María (1996)
    We propose an evolutionary model of a credit market. We show that the economy exhibits credit cycles. The model predicts dynamics which are consistent with some evidence about the Great Depression. Real shocks trigger episodes ...
  • Satyanath, Shanker; Voigtländer, Nico; Voth, Joachim (2013)
    Social capital – a dense network of associations facilitating cooperation within a community – typically leads to positive political and economic outcomes, as demonstrated by a large literature following Putnam. A growing ...
  • Canova, Fabio (2008)
    A method to estimate DSGE models using the raw data is proposed. The approach links the observables to the model counterparts via a flexible specification which does not require the model-based component to be solely located ...
  • Schlag, Karl (2008)
    Small sample properties are of fundamental interest when only limited data is avail- able. Exact inference is limited by constraints imposed by speci.c nonrandomized tests and of course also by lack of more data. These ...
  • Ventura, Jaume (2002)
    This paper presents a stylized model of international trade and asset price bubbles. Its central insight is that bubbles tend to appear and expand in countries where productivity is low relative to the rest of the world. ...
  • Jeon, Doh-Shin; Menicucci, Domenico (2006)
    We consider the agency problem of a staff member managing microfinancing programs, who can abuse his discretion to embezzle borrowers' repayments. The fact that most borrowers of microfinancing programs are illiterate and ...
  • Calveras, Aleix; Ganuza, Juan José (2014)
    Many of the attributes that make a good "socially responsible" are credence attributes that cannot be learned by consumers either through search or experience. Consumers aggregate information about them from several ...
  • Jeon, Doh-Shin; Menicucci, Domenico (2009)
    We consider competition among sellers when each of them sells a portfolio of distinct products to a buyer having limited slots. We study how bundling affects competition for slots. Under independent pricing, equilibrium ...
  • Jeon, Doh-Shin; Menicucci, Domenico (2009)
    In this paper we study, as in Jeon-Menicucci (2009), competition between sellers when each of them sells a portfolio of distinct products to a buyer having limited slots. This paper considers sequential pricing and complements ...
  • Jeon, Doh-Shin; Menicucci, Domenico (2003)
    Site licensing of e-journals has been revolutionizing the way academic information is distributed. However, many librarians are concerned about the possibility that publishers might abuse site licensing by practicing bundling. ...
  • Canova, Fabio; Paustian, Matthias (2007)
    A method to evaluate cyclical models not requiring knowledge of the DGP and the exact specification of the aggregate decision rules is proposed. We derive robust restrictions in a class of models; use some to identify ...
